1994 Provincial Bargaining 

The first round of provincial bargaining in 1996 necessitated the involvement of government before a deal could be reached. The key development was the continuation of the terms and conditions of employment negotiated locally.

Government moved to amalgamate numerous school districts around the province, causing the Federation to respond by allowing its locals to continue, if they so chose.

The second round of provincial bargaining resulted in major improvements in class size for primary classes, and staffing ratios for non-enrolling teachers.
